SANTA BARBARA – Welcome to beautiful Santa Barbara, California! And again a huge thank you to Visit California and Visit Santa Barbara for inviting me on this trip. Today we’re going on a seafood tour of Santa Barbara, especially focusing on local sea urchin (uni), spiny lobsters, and the unique and local box crab – let’s start eating! #SeeSB #SantaBarbara #VisitCalifornia
Again, thank you to Visit California (and Visit Santa Barbara) for sponsoring my trip.
Santa Barbara Fish Market (https://goo.gl/maps/Ny6voJizR8SVhERK6) – First thing in the morning we headed to the Santa Barbara boat harbor to walk around and learn about the unique fishery and fishing community. The highlight for me was heading over to Santa Barbara Fish Market where they shucked some fresh sea urchins and we ate them on spot. Santa Barbara is known throughout the world for their sea urchin, and having a fresh sea urchin is truly a magical food experience.
Santa Barbara Sailing Center (https://www.instagram.com/sbsailing/) – After walking around the Santa Barbara boat harbor, we then walked over to Santa Barbara Sailing Center for a sailboat ride. The ride was spectacular and offered great views of the mountains, and sea, and even some sea lions. We had a few snacks on board as well, just to hold us over.
Rosewood Miramar Beach (https://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/miramar-beach-montecito) – Next up on this seafood day in Santa Barbara, we headed over to Rosewood Miramar Beach where we met up with Chef Massimo who show us how his take on a spiny lobster roll topped with local sea urchin. We also hung out with Stephanie Mutz from Sea Stephanie Fish (https://www.instagram.com/seastephaniefish/), who harvests and the local sea urchin and supplies Rosewood Miramar Beach – so it was extra special to hear from her about the behind the scenes of how she gets the fresh catch.
Santa Barbara Shellfish Company (https://goo.gl/maps/oUBNrynRfsKpNMkh8) – Finally, we ended this amazing food tour in Santa Barbara with a walk down historic Stearns Wharf, and straight to Santa Barbara Shellfish Company, which is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. Along with their incredible uni and scallop bites, I had to try their rare box crab.
